[CL1] Learning about lntercultural Collaboration in a  Networked World (Room 320)
Director: Klaus Haasis

Collaboration is the process where innovation happens and where cluster theory meets reality. Internationalization is a popular task in cluster management but in practice frustration olten grows. Intercultural collaboration is a learning process. Building intercultural competencies requires significant attention to individual and group learning. Cluster Managers should be specialists for embedding learning into organizational processes - also internationally.
[CL2] Generating Cluster Policy Learning through Evaluation (Room 321)
 Director: Madeline Smith & James Wilson & Emily Wise

Building on the work from the Cluster Evaluation Working Group, this cluster lab will bring together an understanding of the academic state-of-art and state-of-use of evaluation of cluster policy practice, focusing on four areas that demand specific attention: capturing the human element or cooperative dynamic; the development of pragmatic indicators and approaches; the selection and combination of techniques and tools; and the ability to deal with complexity derived from interactions across different policy levels, instruments and initiatives
[CL3] Green Lights & Red lights. The Practicalities of Cluster Development (Room 322)
 Director: Ifor Ffowcs-Williams

In this very interactive workshop, participants will have the chance to learn more about experiences on what works and what doesn’t work with regards to the practicalities of cluster development and to listen first-hand on experiences from Europe, Korea, Latin America, and Africa. Learning-by-doing, enlisting cooperation, defining agendas and the role of cluster facilitation and good governance will be some of the ideas that participants will explore. ※ To ensure a quality exchange of experiences, the lab will have a maximum of 25 participants.
[CL4] Cluster Management and Globalized Value Chains (Room 323)
 Director: Reza Zadeh & Gloria Ferrer

Against a backdrop of increasing fragmentation of production processes across different countries and continents, leading to greater prevalence of globalized value chains, this interactive lab will explore cluster management skills needed to help firms thrive. Simply facilitating and brokering local co-operative actions alone, with little strategic input from the cluster managers is no longer an adequate response to deal with such fragmentation. The Lab introduces the Cluster Excellence Management programme and its methodology and approach via an interactive workshop. It sets out the structured approach to developing strategic cluster initiatives and interventions. Through a combination of video links and clips as well as personal presentations, the Lab provides a platform for the Foundation’s alumni from Europe and beyond, to share their experience of developing cluster initiatives in their regions based on the methodology.
